GARY F. BELL has acted, directed, and taught for theatre, film, and television in New York City, Europe, and, most recently, Saint Louis.

In 2000, Bell moved to Saint Louis and established Stray Dog Theatre, a professional theatre company based upon his most successful professional and life experiences. Recognizing that theatre has the capacity to move the human spirit of all participants, Bell has helped transform Stray Dog Theatre into a powerfully engaged, philanthropic community partner. As artistic director, he has assisted in creating numerous community arts programs including the Arts-In-Mind afterschool program, Arts-In-Reach summer camps, Silver Stage Senior Theatre, and the Stray Pups Youth Theatre. A member of Actors’ Equity Association and the American Guild of Variety Artists, Bell is also an accomplished composer, lyricist, and playwright.
